Judge Cheatle was told by the gardaí that it will be alleged that on November 4, 2021, the defendant produced a knife in the car park of Iceland, in Gorey, and that he subsequently entered the store waving the knife and took a 24-pack of 7-Up without paying for it.

“Mr Griffiths was discovered close by but the knife wasn’t recovered,” the investigating garda told the judge.
